Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – February 2014

 

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

Wait a minute... who am I here?

Still Working On It

Jo, cat and I left Atlanta on 9 January. Stops so far have included Mobile, AL, Biloxi, MS, Kerrville, TX, Las Cruces, NM, Lake Havasu City, AZ, Las Vegas, NV and Desert Hot Springs, CA where we're currently visiting.

Reason for trip? Buses By the Bridge in Lake Havasu, an annual tribal gathering of approximately 375 VW buses.

Turnaround will include routing through Joshua Tree NP or Anzo Borrego Desert State Park (decisions!) into Quartzsite, AZ, where we plan to spend 3 days or so exploring the quaint charms of its flea markets and RV parks.

That's all I got so far... No hiccups, no road colds and only one slightly injured mouse.

George, Jo & Ray

Ready for the Winter Olympics?

Let's hope it will be peaceful and rewarding.....

No trips...

Stayed home this past week, mainly because it took me two days to find the Jetta in all the snow, and the wife's white Edge blended in with the snow making it a bit difficult to locate grin

Piece of POI

I'm new to POI alerts. It seems that they usually go off when I'm right on top of them. What is the recommended distance beforure announcing, say, a store or buurgerdoodle?

Only you can answer that question. I will caution you about having too many alerts being triggered. They slow the unit down because they drain processing power and too many going at the same time can cause system lockups because of multiple calls to the sound routine.

Many of us have learned we only need a few POI alerts so each one is separate and distinct. Just because you have loaded a POI file and have an alert tone, it doesn't mean you need to set a proximity or speed trigger. Let's say you like to stop at bugerdoodle but don't necessarily want to know every time one is in the neighborhood, leave the alert and don't set a proximity. If you tell the GPS to find one, it will announce your arrival.

To a sporting good store in an unfamiliar part of the metro area. All because their website said that was the store that stocked what I needed.

The Garmin is helping greatly for getting around, as this is my first visit to the Rio Grande Vally area.

no trips recently

but plans for several

1. operate in the 7QP amateur radio contest from several counties in Wyoming

2. travel to the Star Garnet area of Idaho

3. Layton to Davenport

4. travel to Vancouver BC

down south

We escaped TN about 10 days ago and are boondocking in various spots in Florida.

Now if I can just figure out why the NUVI 50 thinks I traveled 26000 miles getting here
